fever dream
4 May 2020 | by integer634See all my reviews

This season resembles that of a fever dream because it keeps jumping around and makes little sense, this episode in no exception. Characters showing up at convenient moments to carry the plot, gas station scene is pure nonsense. Dolores always twenty steps ahead and when asked for her motivations she responds "Don't ask about my motivations and I won't ask yours". This whole season Man In Black, Bernard, Charlotte accomplished absolutely nothing, stumbling from one location to the other to come upon some critical information or just conveniently someone shows up saves them/carries the plot. Pitiful action sequences all around the season and this episode, hero is surrounded and yet against all odds he survives over and over and over again not once have I felt worried that our "hero" will die.

What annoys me the most in this episode, this is a minor spoiler, Bernard finds out through some database that Dolores wasn't trying to end humanity but in his own words "She was trying to save it." HOW? By murdering people and causing massive riots? By murdering billionaires and stealing their money? How exactly was she trying to save it?! I'm sure even the writers themselves haven't thought of it, but put that as a cliff hanger so they can write it next season. And that's the fundamental flaw - past season one they didn't have the story written so they had to make it up on the go and for that I'd think you really need talented writers and a good sense of direction, neither of which are being used on this show anymore. They're not setting up for season four and frankly after this jest of a season I'm not that interested.
